The Epic of Everest (J.B. Noel, 1924; compiled score from 1924 by Frederick Laurence and Eugene Goossens Snr.)

This concert will involve a musical recreation of The Epic of Everest (J.B. Noel, 1924), a travelogue-cum-quest adventure silent film shot on Mount Everest in 1924 during that year's Royal Geographical Society expedition, the one on which George Mallory and 'Sandy' Irvine died. The film has recently been restored by the British Film Institute and is to be shown in London with a newly commissioned score, however this is the only planned screening with a live recreation of the original score held in the Cambridge University Library. It is an example of a 'compiled score' for silent film, consisting of a number of excerpts from existing classical works as well as a few specially composed themes. This event serves as much as a concert as a film screening today as it surely also did in 1924, and raises interesting questions of musical representation.
Musical recreation directed by Dr Julie Brown (Royal Holloway, University of London).
